Negroland with Margo Jefferson, Thursday, February 18
You are invited to a private dinner with Margo Jefferson.
The dinner will be hosted by Joan Bingham on Thursday, February 18, and will take place at her home on East 79th Street.
Margo will discuss her new book, the New York Times Bestseller Negroland: A Memoir, a reckoning with the strictures and demands of ‘Negroland’ at crucial historical moments—the civil rights movement, the dawn of feminism, and the fallacy of postracial America.
Praise for Negroland: “Powerful and complicated . . . power dwells in the restraint of ‘Negroland.’ Ms. Jefferson gets a lot said about her life, the insults she has weathered, her insecurities, even her suicidal impulses. There’s sinew and grace in the way she plays with memory, dodging here and burning there, like a photographer in a darkroom…”—Dwight Garner, The New York Times
All proceeds will benefit PEN American Center.
